LCD component maker Radiant uses Ares ciMes for e-production control

Radiant Opto-Electronics Corporation, the first Taiwan-based company dedicated to professional LCD backlight unit (BLU) R&D and manufacturing, has officially chosen Ares International Corp. for introducing ciMes (Computer Integrated Manufacturing Execution System) modules at Radiant’s Wujiang, China, base to improve the manufacturing efficiency for its OEM orders.

To realize an e-manufacturing control, Radiant has chosen Ares for its abundant MES implementation experiences. After much analysis of system and business procedures, Ares has deployed a specific function and project planning to implement ciMes-related modules at Radiant, with the modules including quality control, external inspection, alert system, shipment tag printing, in-time information search, coding rule control, RMA control, system authorization control, etc, realizing the whole-process management from the landing of the order to the management of the incoming and outgoing materials to and from the warehouse.

Via outsourcing solutions, Radiant can ensure that its OEM order execution efficiency is improved, with lowered manufacturing cycle. In addition, Radiant will be able to make sure each order is executed accurately and the stability as well as traceability of its product quality by the one-to-one correspondence characteristics of the encoding method.

This is yet another confirmation of Ares ciMes capability by the high-tech manufacturing industry, following a recent implementation at Truly Semiconductors, the largest small- to medium-size TFT LCD panel manufacturer in China. Ares ciMes has complete functions and modules. In addition, its advantages include flexible structure, reasonable pricing and nearby service. Therefore, Ares ciMes has been adopted by large well-known enterprises such as Topsun Optronics Inc., Chi Mei Materials Technology Corp., Luxxon Technology, Optodisc Technology Corporation, Allied Integrated Patterning Corp. (AIPC), ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES (Bermuda) LTD, Princeton Technology Corp., United Microdisplay Optronics Corp. (UMO), STATS ChipPac Taiwan Semiconductor Corp. and APTOS Corporation.

Radiant Opto-Electronics (Suzhou) Co., Ltd, overseeing the Wujiang base of Radiant, was established in February 2001, with major products including LCD monitor components such as light guide panel (LGP), BLU, cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) assembly and film. Its customers cover major global panel makers such as AU Optronics (AUO), Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO), Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT), HannStar Display, Matsushita Electric Industrial, TPO Displays Corp., Transcend Optronics (Yangzhou) Co., Ltd., Sanyo Electric, Sharp, Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology (TMD) and Samsung Electronics.
